Lighthouse.........


Morning peeps , things are finally feeling like they are settling down a bit and I can get back to my daily routine just had to add a few other little jobs to it......lol.I managed to dig and weed one side of my mums garden on Tuesday, because believe it or not it didn't rain, trouble is her garden is really big and overgrown at the moment with weeds, mind you Ethan had a brill. time stripped down to his pants and teeshirt filling up a watering can and then watering the slabs of stone so he could then splash in them (hope my daughter doesn't read this or I'll be trouble), he then took to chasing my mum round the garden trying to wet her through.......he suceeded but they both had fun.

Thought I'd share with you a card that I made for my area manager, he wanted a card to celebrate his wifes 40th birthday......and she likes lighthouses.....arggggh.....not something that I had. I was kindly helped out with the lighthouse image and set about layering it up. I coloured the image in with Prismas and then used glossy accents for the background, popped it into the freezer to get the big cracks and then distressed the top with Tea Dye DI to get that aged look......quite effective me thinks.I added little shells and charms to complete.

Daniele. This card is beautiful. I love everything about it. The design is fab. Love the lighthouse and the little ship's wheel with the "handmade with love" heart charm in the center.
